FORECASTS AND ANALYSIS OF INTERNATIONAL AIR TRAFFIC FOR THE AEROSAT PROGRAM: THE ATLANTIC OCEAN BASIN

The level of international air traffic in the Atlantic Ocean region is analyzed for the base year of 1975 and forecast for the years of 1980, 1985, 1990, and 1995. For forecasting interregional air traffic, a model is developed that uses forecasts of regional economic and population data and data on fuel prices and other aircraft operating costs. A model is described that transforms these traffic forecasts into estimates of instantaneous airborne counts and other activity statistics for defined areas of the Atlantic Ocean basin. The evidence indicates that rather significant and broad aircraft peak counts can be anticipated over the analysis region. These aircraft are potential users of satellite-aided aviation support system. (Author)
